It's almost MARCH!!!!

Hey Andre!

   One of my favorite things is to share my testimony through music. It is such a powerful medium and not only do voices resonate but also the spirit.

     Week this week was hard but good. We have been doing a lot of finding. The first couple days I just felt really burdened down with the area. I almost cried after talking to a lady who just tore me down saying that I didn't know the gospel because I didn't have the Lords' prayer memorized. It's a stupid thing I know, but it was just rough. I think it was mostly hard because everything is new for Sister Jensen and so she is a little scared to do things. At the beginning of the week she didn't door at all and yesterday we were doing every other door. So she is making a lot of progress. Her German is improving everyday which is a lot of help to her and to the people we meet with. Our investigators are doing well, sort of. XXXXXXX is just the We called her Sunday and she was us to Mosiah 7 and then we call monday night and she had read all the way to Alma 11. Sick huh?! She is loving the Book of Mormon and sees how it is so important to follow Jesus Christ. We had a really wonderful lesson with her this past week where she just explained her thoughts about Christ and his atonement and how very humbling it is to know and think about all that he did just because he loves us. It was a touching moment to see her testimony of Christ just bloom.

    Sister Jensen is slowly getting accustomed to the culture here. It's a bit of a culture shock for her as she had never seen anyone smoke, or drink, or dirty shops around town before. She has never traveled outside of the United States so it is a very new experience for her.

  Thanks for the quote Andre. It's way true. It's like that phrase where it says give a man a fish feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime. Christ gives us the tools we need to fish each day. In church, Bruder Pitari gave a talk about how our life is like the German driving tests. There's the theory portion that you learn in a classroom for several weeks and then the praxis where you apply what you have learned and use it on the rode in an actual car. Church is our theory class and the world is our praxis where we take the things we have learned and practice using them. Christ is the teacher. I really related to it because I had to take that darn theory test 3 times. Sometimes we don't get it the first time around, but once I passed I nailed the praxis.

    How is all the schooling stuff going? Thanks for all your help Andre! Love you! Have a great week!
